  • GermsThere was a very large spider in my room last night. I had to knock on Connie and Melanie's door to see if either one of them could deal with creepy-crawlies. Connie sort of got rid of it: it crawled Posted by londonpenguin in The Best of Bulgaria | Sep 15, 2015
  • Guns and RosesOur morning started with a drive through the Balkan Range. There are fields and copses and acres of sunflowers, all with their heads bowed, and then suddenly a small, depressing village where dogs guard junk yards and other places that Posted by londonpenguin in The Best of Bulgaria | Sep 10, 2015
  • Shopska-lessThe mini-fridge in my room makes a lot of noise, especially when it cycles on. It woke me up at 3:00 a.m. when my brain interpreted the "on" sound as something crashing through my window. Breakfast was pretty simple: meats, Posted by londonpenguin in The Best of Bulgaria | Sep 11, 2015
  • Old GoldThat damn fridge kept waking me up all night long. I looked before I went to bed last night to see whether or not it could be unplugged, but the cabinet it was in was too close to the wall Posted by londonpenguin in The Best of Bulgaria | Sep 12, 2015
  • Cats and cricketsIt already seems like Varna was days ago; I can't even properly picture it in my head. It's funny how being on the coach will do that. Our first stop of the day was the Madara Horseman, situated in a Posted by londonpenguin in The Best of Bulgaria | Sep 13, 2015
  • Shopping and dancingThe cricket eventually buggered off last night, thank Heaven! The music went on for a while but it was a nice jazzy sound, so I didn't mind it. For a short while, it was just a tenor sax playing, and Posted by londonpenguin in The Best of Bulgaria | Sep 14, 2015
  • Skinny lionI slept well last night, despite the disco or party or whatever it was nearby that had a continuous boom-boom-boom bass-y sort of noise. Actually, it sounded more like the noise an MRI machine makes than musical bass but, as Posted by londonpenguin in The Best of Bulgaria | Sep 5, 2015
  • Religion and government(By popular demand, I've included a picture of the skinny lion. It's from a distance, so you can't really tell it has a mohawk, but check out those ribs!) Breakfast this morning was the usual European array of meats, cheeses, Posted by londonpenguin in The Best of Bulgaria | Sep 6, 2015
  • The kidsPacked up this morning and loaded onto our coach. Our driver is Kyril, but I don't think he speaks English at all. The bus isn't as good as a Heidebloem, but it's a similar set-up (really, how much difference Posted by londonpenguin in The Best of Bulgaria | Sep 7, 2015
  • WineIt was so quiet during the night, and I actually slept really well. The mattress wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The shower was … just a tiny corner of the tiny bathroom; there was either scalding Posted by londonpenguin in The Best of Bulgaria | Sep 8, 2015
  • Makgoha^gc and Tiger FoodWoke up to rain this morning. Boo. The breakfast room is very large, has a couple of buffet lines, and was filled with people. I was sitting at a table with Barb and Moody, and Stefan eventually sat down with Posted by londonpenguin in The Best of Bulgaria | Sep 9, 2015
  • Thank heaven for little mermaidsMy flight was at 1:43, so naturally we left the house at 10:35 (well, it is the Friday of Labor Day weekend!) and got to SeaTac just after 11:00. My flight was booked through KLM, but Delta operates the flights Posted by londonpenguin in The Best of Bulgaria | Sep 4, 2015

  • What brings a nation together? What brings a nation together? Political, social, economic issues, and pure human envy divide people. I am not talking just about the States, and Donald Trump. Turn on news anywhere in the world - negativity, black and white strokes of Posted by Brufamily in Bru Adventures | Feb 14, 2017
  • Sofia Open excitement and an "Evening With The Stars"Grigor Dimitrov made all Bulgarians proud a few days ago. Eagerly, excitedly and expectantly, we all watched him play in the Australian Open semi-final against Nadal. I can speak for myself, I watched the game closely, screaming and cheering...
